The overall anti-jamming market for GPS is expected to grow from USD 3.86 billion in 2018 to USD 5.50 billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 7.34%, according to ResearchAnd Markets.com.
High demand for GPS technology in military applications and ongoing developments to improve the overall GPS infrastructure are the key factors driving the growth of this market.
GPS anti-jamming technology is used to protect GPS receivers from intervention and intentional jamming. The GPS anti-jamming solutions use power minimization to reduce the effect of interference and jamming to ensure the correct functioning of GPS receivers. These devices use digital filtering technology to amplify the ability of GPS receivers to lock or weaken the GPS signals caused by the external noise interferences from other electronic devices or GPS jammers. This report analyzes the anti-jamming market for GPS segmented on the basis of receiver type, technique, application, end user, and geography.
On the basis of anti-jamming technique, the market has been segmented into nulling, beam steering, and civilian techniques. The market for civilian techniques is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing demand for anti-jammers for commercial vehicles is likely to boost the market for civilian technique-based anti-jamming systems.
The anti-jamming market for GPS in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rising adoption of GPS technology in the defense and commercial sectors, with a focus on accuracy and secured navigation, is expected to fuel the growth of the anti-jamming market for GPS in this region during the forecast period. As a result, APAC also holds a significant share of the overall anti-jamming market for GPS.
The military organizations depend on satellite technology for accurate positioning, timing, and communications. The GPS signals received on the ground are weak and susceptible to interference as well as intentional jamming. The signals are usually obscured by thermal noise and are only observable with a tuned signal analyzer, such as a GPS receiver. A simple low-power jammer, readily available via the World Wide Web, can overpower GPS signals within a large area, denying a position solution and timing. The GPS anti-jamming technology is evolving quickly. Until recently, the anti-jam systems were only feasible for expensive assets, such as strategic aircraft and capital ships, due to the size and cost considerations.
Civilian anti-jamming systems are mostly used in law enforcement activities as well as in rescue operations on disaster-affected areas. It is the most niche end user in the GPS anti-jamming market. The market for this segment is expected to grow at a higher pace after the introduction of cost-effective GPS anti-jamming systems. The current purpose served by the GPS anti-jamming systems for civilians is mostly related to improving the quality of the receiving strengths of GPS signals.
